Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Key result
dynamic viscosity (in mPa s)

 Details on single measurements:

 Temperature /°C  kin. Viscosity (1. Measurement) /mm²/s

 kin. Viscosity (2. Measurement) /mm²/s

 20  12.740  12.760
 40  6.860  6.859

Accuracy < +/- 0.5%

The dynamic viscosity was calculated from the arithmetic mean of the kinematic viscosity (2 replicates) based on the density ( 0.8996 g/cm³) of the test item at 20°C:

11.470 mPa s.

Kinematic viscosity at 40°C (arithmetic mean of 2 replicates): 6.86 mm^2/s

Dynamic viscosity: 11.47 mPa s (20 °C)
Executive summary:

Viscosity was determined using the capillary viscosimeter method (kinematic viscosity; ASTM D 445; mean of two determinations) at 20 °C and 40 °C:

12.75 mm^2/s at 20°C, corresponding to a dynamic viscosity of 11.47 mPa s.

6.86 mm^2/s at 40°C.

The laboratory complied with a quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001 : 2008.

Additional information

Based on the kinematic viscosity of the test item at 40°C (arithmetic mean of 2 replicates) of 6.86 mm^2/s, for hydrocarbons a classification as Aspiration toxicity, Hazard Category 1 would be applicable according to REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP). However, the submission substance is invariably a carboxylic acid. Thus, classification criteria based on viscosity do not apply to the submission substance.


In conclusion, according to REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) no classification requirements exist for the submission substance with regard to aspiration toxicity.
